Jeff,

Nope, it's still happening. I went to CharityHospitalReport1924, clicked "edit item", and after making minor changes (adding date and a few other fields), I click submit and get this message:

No change to derivation rules.
Unknown err: mkdir(): Permission denied [/usr/local/petabox/www/common/ItemDropper.inc:66]
An error has occurred. Please post to the forums.

I'm still perplexed. I just made a metadata change with no problems. (I made the link in your description a hot link. I can remove that if you like). So everything seems to be working. What specifically were you trying to change?

I added more content to this Item of mine yesterday. This involved me using the Metadata Editor > Change the Information. I added some text and another image in my Description field using HTML. No Problems. This is a Video Item, originally created and uploaded on Oct 12, 2010.

I made a minor change to the content in this Item of mine an hour ago to do a performance test for you. This involved me using the Metadata Editor > Change the Information. I made a very minor change to some text to perform this test in my Description field HTML. No Problems. This is an Audio Item, originally created and uploaded on April 7, 2011.

Just now I made a minor change to Kelly Pierce's content to do a performance test for you. I uploaded a logo image and got it to appear in the Item's logo area. Then, in the Metadata Editor, I added some info to the txt field for the image's description. 2 edits, and no problems. This is an Audio Item. I originally created this item for Chicago Independent Media Center and uploaded it on April 29, 2011.

I'm running Win XP, Firefox browser. I hope this helps. I couldn't find anything wrong when I made all these changes in some of my Items.

• Yesterday was the brief Search Engine outage. That was fixed quickly. Today, when I submit my queries to The Archive's Search Engine, I get Search Results coming back to my browser from The Archive at speeds that are smoking fast.

Today, I cannot make changes to this item. I am getting the same error message as others:

"Unknown err: mkdir(): Permission denied [/usr/local/petabox/www/common/ItemDropper.inc:66]"

I hope this helps you guys track this down.

Server/system issues. Hopefully all is well now.

It just started working. I was once again able to save changes I made in the Metadata Editor for this item of mine.

It's hapenning to me this morning too. I uploaded two albums this morning and everytime I try to get to the details page I'm asked again to pick a collection and to type a title, creator name, etc. When I submit the changes I get

"No change to derivation rules.

Unknown err: mkdir(): Permission denied [/usr/local/petabox/www/common/ItemDropper.inc:66]

An error has occurred. Please post to the forums."

The two items I uploaded are

www.archive.irg/details/EFJAI0802 and
www.archive.irg/details/EFJAI1002

Thanks in advance
